    I picked this book off of the shelf because it was small and pretty and I was on vacation I liked it fine If you are looking for a small portable book I would suggest this one And I'm not going to ruin anything by suggesting that it has a surprise ending But it might It has some eccentric characters a plus for me

    This is a heartbreaking story altogether sobecause the narrative probably reflects a truthto the plight of young women in poorer partsof MexicoI did not get the long italicized portion towardthe end of the book but I was surprised atthe non italicized ending A shocker thatmakes story even sadderBe prepared for depression but also for a verymoving short novel

    a perfect read with a structure that i really liked loved the blend of poetry and prose and the reasons behind that decision although i usually dislike works where the protagonist redacted this was a rare occasion where that decision works very well this is on my study shelf as in works that i use to study writing
